Peripheral constituencies of Hyderabad will get separate budget: CM KCR in Medchal

Chief Minister Mr K Chandrashekhar Rao has said the Medchal and other surrounding constituencies around Hyderabad city represent a mini India. People from different places migrate to make a living and those areas need more infrastructure like roads, drains, water and housing. Those peripheral constituencies will receive more funds under a separate budget in the future, he said. KCR added that the BRS government has already decided to construct one lakh more double-bedroom houses in Hyderabad city.

Mr KCR is addressing a huge gathering of the public at the meeting organised as part of the party election campaign. Party candidate and minister Ch Malla Reddy and others were present. The Chief Minister said it was the Congress leaders who mocked the separate Telangana movement when it was launched. It was the Congress leaders who merged the Telangana into Andhra in 1950s.

“We should not allow them to do any such thing again. We should not make any mistake once again. We should choose our vote wisely and reject the Congress,” Mr KCR told the crowds. He said the people of Telangana were treated as secondary citizens by the successive rulers. When the then chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy openly denied funds for Telangana, not a single Congress leader from Telangana raised their voice against him. They compromised for their positions at the cost of the welfare and self-respect of the people of Telangana.

During the past decade, the state made excellent progress on all counts. There is peace and tranquillity. There is not a single incident of communal violence. “We should continue our progress. It is possible if the BRS government is voted again. I appeal to you all to vote for Ch Malla Reddy, a humble being with huge margin and leave all your worries to me,” Mr KCR said.
